Parallels between Hawaiian and Hindu Gods

The geographically and culturally distant civilizations of the ancient Hawaiians and Hindus of India share remarkable parallels in their religious deities. Though deities from each region are distinct, the divine figures of these two cultural pantheons used many of the same techniques to express the same religious ideals.  

Hawaiian gods and goddesses typically embody the natural elements of the islands, such as the ocean, mountains, rivers, and volcanoes. The Hawaiian pantheon has over 4,000 deities, each structured into a hierarchical family of gods and goddesses. Chief among the Hawaiian gods and goddesses is Ku; deity and personification of the primal darkness, chaos, and the process of creation and destruction. Ku, like the Hindu god, Shiva, is often depicted with various weapons and is associated with death, destruction, and fertility. Other Hawaiian gods and goddesses, including Kane the Sky Father, Kanaloa the god of the sea, and Pele the goddess of volcanoes, are similarly paralleled in the Hindu pantheon by Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva and the Goddess Kali.

In Hindu tradition, all gods are credited as aspects or manifestations of the ultimate reality that is Brahman. In the same way, the ultimate reality of the Hawaiian gods is expressed in their concept of Aumakua, who is the supreme being from which all the gods and goddesses originate. Aumakua (or Io, the Supreme One of Ancient Hawaiian tradition) is credited with having the ultimate power over death, destruction, and fertility. This conceptualization of a single source of all gods and goddesses echoes the monism expressed in the Hindu religion, where there is one unified source, Brahman, from which all aspects of reality emanate.

Other similarities between the Hindu and Hawaiian pantheons include the shared reverence for ancestors and the idea of kapu, or sacredness. Among Hindu gods, this reverence is expressed in the notion of ancestor worship, where offerings are made to the departed. The ancient Hawaiian religion also expresses similar veneration for departed ancestors. These ancestors are viewed as guides and protectors that inhabit the divine realm known as Po. In each culture, departed ancestors are thought to interact with the living and serve to protect them from harm.

Additionally, both Hawaiian and Hindu religions place strong emphasis on concepts such as respect, balance, and sustainability. As the Hawaiian gods maintain the ecological balance of the islands, the Hindu gods function in a similar manner throughout India. Respect and balance are seen in both pantheons as separate gods cooperate to maintain a sense of harmony and stability among the people. Nature veneration is also a shared concept between the two religious traditions, as humans are to show reverence to and respect the natural environment as sources of power and healing.

The parallels between the ancient gods of Hawaii and India demonstrate the remarkable ways in which two distant cultures can arrive at similar religious conceptualizations. Through each region’s pantheon of gods, common religious ideals emerge, emphasizing respect, resilience, and balance. Ultimately, the Hawaiian and Hindu gods serve as tangible reminders of the interconnectedness of global culture and religion.

Lono of the Vastness – Hawaii

Native Hawaiian culture is a unique and special piece of the Polynesian melting pot. One of the most famous aspects of this culture is the worship of the god Lono. Hawaii has been called Lono of the Vastness since ancient times. In this article, I will discuss the origin and meaning of the name, as well as its connection to traditional Hawaiian culture.

The name Lono comes from the Hawaiian god Lono, who is credited with bringing the laws and customs that are important to Hawaiian culture and beliefs. Lono is a god of peace and fertility and is known as the King of the Isles and Lord of the Skies. He is seen as a provider of life, fertility, and prosperity. The word lono actually means “plenty” or “abundance”.

The origin of the name Lono of the Vastness comes from an ancient Hawaiian creation story. According to this story, the god Kane and the goddess Hina created four islands: Hawaii, Kauai, Oahu, and Maui. Following the creation of the islands, Kane and Hina decided to name them. They chose the name Lono for Hawaii, based on the god Lono’s bounty of abundance and fertility.

The connection between Lono and Hawaii is strong and deeply embedded in Hawaiian culture. Lono is seen as a source of protection and abundance, and is celebrated in the annual Makahiki festival. The Makahiki festival is a time of spiritual renewal and is meant to honor and thank Lono for the abundance and prosperity that come to the islands.

Lono is also seen as the protector of the islands. Ancient Hawaiian chiefs regularly prayed to Lono in their efforts to bring protection and prosperity to their people. This connection to the spirit world has been seen as an important part of Hawaiian culture and beliefs, and the name Lono of the Vastness reinforces this connection.

The name Lono of the Vastness is an important part of Hawaii’s history and culture. It is a reminder of the god Lono and his role in Hawaiian mythology and beliefs. The connection of the god to the islands can be seen in the celebration of the Makahiki festival, as well as the prayers from Hawaiian chiefs for protection and abundance. These all make clear why Hawaii is sometimes called Lono of the Vastness.

Red-haired Giants in Hawaii?

Giants with red hair are not a common sight in Hawaii, but they have been recorded throughout history. Reports of large, red-haired individuals living in the islands stretch back hundreds of years. From stories of warriors and deities to scientific observations, the presence of red-haired giants in the island chain has been noted by various sources. This article will examine the various accounts of these unusual inhabitants in Hawaii and explore the likely reasons behind their presence. In doing so, it will investigate the consequences of superstition, racial prejudice, colonialism and scientific inquiry in shaping our contemporary understanding of these giants.

Origin Stories

Many origins stories and myths of red-haired giants have been recorded in Hawaii. Native legends of red-haired beings living in the islands date back hundreds of years. For example, the Hawaiian god ʻKane was said to have red hair, as was the goddess Kaʻahumanu. In other legend, a red-haired giant called Kana Loa was believed to have come to the island on a double-hulled canoe. In more recent times Captain James Cook, who arrived in the Hawaiian islands in 1778, recorded sightings of a number of large, red-haired people in the island group.

Historical Accounts

Colonial records offer further evidence of red-haired giants in the Hawaiian Islands. Reports of red-haired sailors sent to shore as a diplomatic visit to Hawaiians were recorded by European settlers in the early 1800s. In 1821, American settlers described a giant with red hair and large frame who they believed to be a Polynesian, though it is unclear whether the giant was of Tahitian or Hawaiian origin. In 1823, the noted English explorer and adventurer William Ellis encountered a large red-haired Polynesian living on Kauai Island, who was recorded in his journals as a “luminous giant.”

Scientific Studies

In the 20th century, scientific study of red-haired giants was undertaken. In one study conducted by anthropologist Kenneth Emory and physical anthropologist William Ward from the Bishop Museum in Honolulu, it was proposed that the red-haired giants of the Hawaiian islands were likely of Tahitian or Marquesan origin. According to their theory, the early Polynesian settlers likely carried the gene for red hair to the Hawaiian Islands, and the individual variations in hair coloration observed in the population resulted from subsequent migration and intermarriage between different Polynesian groups.

Conclusion

The presence of red-haired giants in the Hawaiian islands is a phenomenon that has been marked by superstitious tales, racial prejudice and scientific inquiry. Through oral histories and colonial records, we have a better understanding of the place and meaning of giants with red hair in the history of Hawaii, as well as a scientific explanation for the individual variations in hair color found in the islanders. In conclusion, we have shown that the phenomenon of red-haired giants in the Hawaiian isles is a fascinating element of island history, one that deserves further study and acknowledgement.

Royals with Red Hair and Blue Eyes??

There is a theory by some authors and researchers that most of the Royals, some of the Pharaohs, in particular Rameses II, and even Jesus & Mary Magdalene were Blue Eyed, Red heads with freckles… and thus they claim that they had to have been Caucasian Blue Eyed Red Heads.. but I gotta remind all that you can have red hair, freckles, blue, green or hazel eyes and still be Black, and even the Waka Blondes of New Zealand & Hawaii (Ehu) and the Blondes of Fiji & Solomon Islands can all still be dark or light skinned.

There are various sources online which propose this theory that all the Royals had Red or Blonde Hair and Blue Eyes.. and you can also search RH- Blood and Royals.. but my issue with some of these claims is that they almost always conclude that these Royals had to have been Caucasian then.. but through a simple google search you can see that Red Hair, Blonde Hair, Freckles, Blue, Green and Hazel Eyes can happen in Black and Brown people too.. so while rare… the rarity doesn’t conclusively mean all these royals must’ve been White. If indeed Red/Blonde Hair and Blue eyes was a signifying trait of the Royals.. it could’ve just as easily been that.. rare family of Black red heads with Blue/Green eyes… especially those that lived in Egypt, Africa or the Middle East.
